Ex-Porsche Lawyer Sentenced After Throwing Her Newborn Out Window So It Wouldn't Disrupt Her Career
  • Sounds pretty awful, but remember that prosecutors don't have ESP. So "prosecutors claim she didn't want to jeopardize her career" is not the same as "she didn't want to jeopardize her career".

    It's not like she wrote in her diary "Today I killed my newborn because I thought it would interfere with work."

  • In first interview as VP candidate, JD Vance explains why he called Trump 'America's Hitler'
  • Did you also misremember my post? I didn't say Kamala thinks Biden said racist things, and she didn't say that either.

    Anyway, you might think that statement makes Biden a racist, and that's your prerogative. But Kamala does not have to agree with you.

    Maybe she thinks it was a hurtful thing to say but that's not enough to make Biden a racist. Maybe she thinks it doesn't reflect who Biden is today. There are countless other possible explanations for her position, and ultimately she doesn't need you to tell her what she thinks.

  • In first interview as VP candidate, JD Vance explains why he called Trump 'America's Hitler'
  • She thinks Biden said ~~hurtful~ racist things in the past but she doesn't think he is racist.

    Bruh, my post is right above yours. Everyone can see you intentionally misquoted me. And intentionally misquoted Kamala.

    "I don't want my kids to grow up in a racial jungle".

    Why do you keep making up quotes? Is it because you think your version sounds worse than the actual quote or is it because you haven't bothered to find the actual quote?

    It doesn't get much more racist

    You might think so, but this is not about whether you think he's racist. The question is what Kamala thinks, and she already said she doesn't agree with you.

  • In first interview as VP candidate, JD Vance explains why he called Trump 'America's Hitler'
  • Just following the logic of "If Kamala doesn't confirm my bias, she must be lying."

    And her statement is not "self-contradictory". She thinks Biden said hurtful things in the past but she doesn't think he is racist.

    Frankly that could apply to a lot of white people. So if you don't understand how she can truthfully say those things, that's on you.

  • In first interview as VP candidate, JD Vance explains why he called Trump 'America's Hitler'
  • she just said the first part

    That's certainly one interpretation, especially if you want to put words into people's mouths to fit your narrative.

    Here's another interpretation: when Kamala said that she doesn't believe Biden is racist, it meant that she doesn't believe Biden is racist.

  • In first interview as VP candidate, JD Vance explains why he called Trump 'America's Hitler'
  • she just said "I'm not calling you a racist, but"

    She didn't say that, either.

    What she actually said was “I do not believe you are a racist, and I agree with you when you commit yourself to the importance of finding common ground.”

  • Germany’s doner kebab becomes symbol of angst over rising costs
  • Turkey is within Europe. It's a question of geography, not culture.

    What people think about Turkish culture is a completely separate question. Americans have a similar culture to the British, but that does not make Americans part of Europe. Nor can Turkey's culture move their land outside of Europe.

  • After Biden's debate performance, new national NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll finds the presidential race is unchanged
  • I understand that your preferred poll includes candidates who most people can't vote for.

    If I saw a poll where the choices were Biden, Trump, and Taylor Swift then I wouldn't pay any attention to that one either. You probably would, though, if it was bad for Biden.

  • After Biden's debate performance, new national NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll finds the presidential race is unchanged
  • Moving goalposts so soon? You don't seem to care about RFK any more.

    The only 3rd party candidates in that poll with over 2% are RFK and West. In most states, neither are on the ballot. So the relevant poll results are head to head.

    But keep trying to twist the results to explain Why This Is Bad News For Biden. Maybe you'll land a job at the NYT.

  • Biden sets out new Israeli proposal to end war in Gaza

    www.bbc.com Israel-Gaza war: Biden sets out new Israeli proposal to end conflict - BBC News

    US president urges Hamas to accept the three-phase plan, saying "it's time for this war to end".

    Ending the Gaza war: Three phase proposal

    PHASE ONE

    • It would begin with a six-week ceasefire, during which the IDF would withdraw from populated areas of Gaza
    • Hamas would release "a number" of hostages - including women, the elderly and the wounded - in exchange for hundreds of Palestinian prisoners. Some remains of dead Israeli hostages would be returned to their families
    • Palestinian civilians would return to their homes in all areas of Gaza
    • Humanitarian assistance would "surge", with 600 trucks a day entering the strip, and hundreds of thousands of temporary housing units sent by the international community

    During that six week period, negotiations mediated by the US and Qatar would continue. If successful, the next part of the plan would begin.
